Anyone else (without NAV) notice that when you touch the green Information corner, it does not make the "click" sound like it does when you touch/press any other corner or option? Or is that just happening to me? :)

How are you guys formatting your background images so it looks nice on the touchscreen?

The times I've tried it, the images appear stretched...

BTW - audible.com has updated their website to say that "Audible compatibility with MyFord Touch should be made available to you by early April". So apparently Ford has done their part and now it's up to Audible to update their end. Doesn't surprise me that audible is behind on their timeframe.... :(

The picture needs to be 800x378 pixels to appear unstretched.

What I do is scale any image down (in Paint.NET, Photoshop, ... whatever), preserving aspect ratio, so that one of its dimensions matches (width = 800 or height = 378) and the other is larger (width > 800 or height > 378). Then crop (not resize) the other dimension to select the viewable region without squashing the image horizontally/vertically.

You can make almost anything work with this approach. Widescreen images (16x9) work best because they're closer to 800x378 aspect ratio than 4x3, so you don't need to crop as much.

I noticed it too, almost started to press it again until I saw that it was actually switching. But I almost never use that corner so it's of no concern to me right now.

First screen


Hopefully the last time I will see this, AKA the MFT BSOD


Upgrade successful about 45 minutes later


Home with wallpaper (title/artist not showing for my connected and playing iPhone 4S). When I touch NAV nothing happens, but the systems seems to be working fine.
Looks like you have a screen protector on it... where did you get it from? Or did you just get a universal one and cut it yourself? Looks good!

Hi all,

first of all, thanks for the goods, already tested on a focus 2012 in Mexico, everything works as should be, even with the language.

Cheers !!!

I updated my MFT thanks to txskeets and others who provided the file... thanks!

It took about 45 minutes.. easy peasy. I played around with it for about 5 minutes and everything is working great! I would have been thrilled if it came like this out of the box, but at least it is here now. Good job, Ford!

Nav doesn't work yet but I don't care... it was pretty useless with the old version of the software anyway. I'll gladly be without nav for a bit to have the update now.

Am I the only one whose update is "Interrupted" at 142MB? It's happened 3 times already.

Maybe I'll try another browser...
